Computer game ‘Oregon Trail’ returns

(KGW)  The 1980’s era computer game “Oregon Trail” is back, and some in the state believe that could lead to big tourism money for Oregon.

The game, famous for dysentery, broken bones and other ills that “befell” its players, is available again online and has seen a huge resurgence in popularity.

Directors at the Oregon Historical society say the game has visitors clamoring for a covered wagon fix, and they’re not the only ones cashing in.

The staff at Travel Oregon says these days anything that sparks interest among millenial means big money for the Pacific Northwest.
